Stampin' Up! Free as a Bird Card

HELLO!  Welcome to my blog on this lovely day.  Have you ever created your own Patterned Paper?  That's exactly what I did for the background paper on this card, and I love it!  The images in the Free as a Bird stamp set by Stampin' Up! are absolutely perfect for creating your own Patterned Paper.  Plus, Stampin' Blends are amazing for coloring in those images for a bright and professional look. 

Fresh Freesia Card Base ~ 8-1/2" x 5-1/2", scored at 4-1/4"
Basic White Cardstock ~ 4" x 5-3/4", 4"x2", and 4" x 5-1/4" (inside)
Fresh Freesia ~ 4-1/8" x 5-3/8"

  1. Stamp the flowers, buds and leaves all over the 5-1/2" x 4" Basic White CS using Tuxedo Black Memento ink.
  2. Stamp the birds on the limb on the 2" x 4" Basic White CS, also with Tuxedo Black Memento ink.  Stamp 'Hello' under the limb.
  3. Use Stampin' Blends to color the images.  OPTIONAL: Go over the birds lightly with the Stampin' Blends Color Lifter.  
  4. Use a Water Painter and Fresh Freesia ink to splash ink on over the images on the 'patterned paper'
  5. Cut 1/2" x 4" strip off the end of the 'patterned paper' to use on the inside.  You should be left with 4" x 5-1/4" for the background on the front of the card. 
  6. Attach the Basic White CS with the birds to the 2-1/8" x 4-3/8" Fresh Freesia CS.  Then glue that to the 'patterned paper' layer.  Wrap a piece of white twine around the entire thing and tie a bow.
  7. Use Stampin' Dimensionals to attach the 'patterned paper' to your Card Front. 

Glue the  1/2" x 4" piece of 'patterned paper' to the left side of the remaining piece of Basic White Cardstock.  Then, glue the Basic White CS to the inside of your card.
